The Town of Somers Senior Center is open to all residents ages 55+. There is no membership required. All seniors are welcome! It is our goal to create a warm and welcoming environment where seniors feel at home and can take part in social, educational and recreational activities.
Hours: Monday-Friday 8am-4pm
The Somers Senior Center will remain closed until further notice due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Please see our Summer Newsletter for all outdoor and zoom activities.

The Somers Senior Center offers CHOICES counseling. CHOICES stands for Connecticut’s program for Health insurance assistance, Outreach, Information & Referral, Counseling and Eligibility Screening. Free and objective information, counseling and assistance is available to older adults and persons with disabilities enabling them to understand and exercise their rights, access and receive benefits to which they are entitled, and make more informed decisions about quality of life issues. CHOICES is also an excellent Medicare resource for individuals who are “New to Medicare”, for example, just turning 65 years old or eligible for Medicare because of a qualifying illness or disability. Trained CHOICES staff can help consumers navigate life’s stages while reducing the stress and confusion. Counselors do not sell insurance.
Meals on Wheels
If you or someone you know is homebound and unable to grocery shop/prepare meals, they may be eligible for Meals on Wheels. The program is available to residents of Somers who are considered homebound for a fee of $4.00 per hot meal and $3.00 per cold meal. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
We are in need of volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels. If you or someone you know is willing to donate your/their time to this important program, please contact Christina at 860-265-7551 for more information.
